Module assignments


The lecture is on the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The CISG is a sales law treaty with acceptance on a worldwide scale. Globalisation of markets demands international unification of the law of sales contracts. Disparities in national laws governing international trade create obstacles to the flow of trade. The CISG can provide legal certainty for contract parties and predictability of legal decisions.

The aim of this lecture is to acquaint the students with the CISG and learn how it regulates the international sale of goods between parties which have their place of business in different states.

The content of this lecture will be amongst others the scope of application of the Convention, the formation of the contract, the obligations of the seller and the buyer and consequences of breach of contract.
